The hotel has 391 guestrooms and suites. Public spaces include an indoor pool and a sauna. The onsite restaurant, Duck Creek Kitchen & Bar, offers a menu that features local and indigenous foods from the Oneida Nation including Oneida beef and bison, apples from the Oneida Apple Orchard and Oneida white corn.

San Diego

Lowe and Atlas Hotels have completed the renovation and repositioning of the 675-room Town and Country resort in San Diego. The 40-acre urban resort hotel and conference center is located on Hotel Circle North in Mission Valley.
 
“Our reveal of the new Town and Country resort is the culmination of several years of thoughtful design and development work to realize our vision for this expansive property as a modern resort destination, equally attractive to leisure, business and convention visitors,” said Rob Lowe, co-CEO of Lowe. “Our redevelopment program improved every aspect of the property including adding new recreation elements, an array of top-flight dining outlets, a redesigned lobby and entrance, updated event and meeting spaces and most importantly the renovation of every spacious guest room and suite as fresh, contemporary and comfortable spaces.”
 
Lowe created a mixed-use program for the property that included reducing the number of hotel rooms from 954 to 675 in order to add to the outdoor recreation and gathering places as well as adding residences to the site with Holland Partner Group. The first phase under construction.
 
The overarching design for the property was inspired by its origins in the 1950s. The color palette, furnishings and design elements are a contemporary take on mid-century modern, the combination of which has transformed the property into an inviting and bright new California classic.
 
Public spaces at the hotel include two swimming pools with poolside cabanas, one children’s pool and a new waterslide. A penthouse fitness center offers exercise and yoga classes. The lobby bar serves small bites and cocktails, while the main restaurant, Arlo, is headed by Chef Josh Mouzakes. MRKT serves grab-and-go spot while Lapper is the poolside dining outlet and Trixie is a “canned-ham” style trailer serving casual fare. The property also has 258,000 square feet of event and meeting space. 
 
Lowe’s property renovation was led by SVP Todd Majcher. Town and Country’s property design team was Gensler in collaboration with Sixteenfifty Creative Intelligence. Room interiors were created by HFS Concepts4 and the new landscaping plan was developed by Burton Landscape Architecture Studio. Town and Country is managed by Lowe’s third-party hotel and resort management affiliate, CoralTree Hospitality, under the direction of VP and GM April Shute.
